Hello, I have been struggling to figure out a dual workspace solution for my phone. I am using 'Samsung My KNOX' on a Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) so I can use my phone both as a work phone and as a personal/private phone. It is working fine except for a glitch with default/pre-installed apps, like Google Drive, Gmail, YouTube, etc. As it turns out, I am "forced" to keep these aforementioned apps installed in both workspaces, unlike all the other apps that are downloaded from the Google Play Store. More specifically, I can either have: (a) an app -- let's say YouTube -- in both workspaces installed and fully updated (b) YouTube uninstalled/disabled in both (c) YouTube disabled in one workspace and installed in the other but only the default/pre-installed version; if I try to update it, then it automatically installs and updates itself on the other workspace as well. In the first place, the only reason I wanted to set up a private workspace is because, unfortunately, Google apps have no proper sign-out function. As long as you have signed in with a Google account in your phone's settings then you're automatically signed in every Google app on your phone. Some of them -- YouTube being one -- allow you to sign out, but right after you can just tap sign in, and you are logged right back in without requesting the password. Only work around I can think of, is logging out my Google account from one workspace and only keep it logged in the other workspace; in this case my private workspace. Which obviously is not a very satisfying solution. If after all, there's no other work around, and I compromise with being logged in only one workspace, will I be able to erase everything -- in both workspaces on my phone -- using Android Device Manager remotely, if it gets lost/stolen? Or will it just erase the workspace in which I was logged in with my Google account? Is there something I'm missing here? Thank you in advance for any help. Also, please feel free to move this thread accordingly if I didn't post in the right section.
